Contributing

Hi everyone,
I got an university assignment to contribute to open source game project.I
was wandering if anyone could recommend me any KDE game project that needs
improving or refer me to someone I could talk directly about this.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. sorry if this isn't right place for this, I am new here

KIO slave-socket shortcut - does it exist?

KIO works.

My current level of understanding is that apps ask klauncher/kdeinit for a
KIO slave if they need one. Then either kdeinit spawns a new slave process,
or there is already an idle slave and it is reused. Idle slaves kill
themselves after a couple of minutes if no request is coming in.
Communication between the slave and the app happens via a socket, usually
to find in /run/user/$UID.

The question is if, or rather when, it is possible to shortcut this
process. Do slaves, especially idle ones, accept commands issued by third
programs via these sockets?

Commitfilter

Hello,

I still receive commit messages from commitfilter. How can I cancel that since

Time formats / LC_TIME challenge for 4-digit year support

Hello,
The need: 4-digit year support for short date formats to avoid issues like
"10/11/12" dates.

This is just my initial conclusion from for the Qt date format issue:

<a href="https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-436861" title="https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-436861">https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-59382?focusedCommentId=436861&amp;page...</a>
lt;dr: KF5 context: KCallendarSystem is part of the old APIs and the only
code I found related to LC_TIME.

So I've not found any common code KDE app can use instead of hard coding
some internal logic in order to support non-Plasma environments and/or
non-global settings.

Transitioning CI builds of all non-Frameworks from Qt 5.9

Hi all,

I've been informed by the PIM developers that they would like to bump
the dependency of the Qt version they use, from Qt 5.9 which it's on
currently, to Qt 5.10.

As a consequence, due to many KDE projects using PIM libraries, their
dependency on Qt will also be effectively bumped.

Mockup Design Assets for KDE

Hey y'all.

(posting this to two mailing lists as I'm a bit confused which is most useful)

Do we have an equivalent of this for KDE?

<a href="https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources" title="https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources">https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-mockups-resources</a>

I was debating just winging it in Qt Designer for a little bit but something
like the above allows people without Qt Designer to use other tools like
Pencil (<a href="https://pencil.evolus.vn/" title="https://pencil.evolus.vn/">https://pencil.evolus.vn/</a> + <a href="https://github.com/evolus/pencil" title="https://github.com/evolus/pencil">https://github.com/evolus/pencil</a>) for
making mockups and design.

Also, do we have a place to submit mockups for application design and ideas
for KDE?

Installing indic (Hindi, Punjabi) etc keyboard layouts

Ever since I upgraded from KDE4 to Plasma, the keyboard layouts for indian
languages have been missing when I try to add them. I know this was an
issue before with KDE4, and I had to update my xkb installation - some
versions had these language keyboards removed from xkb. I still have an xkb
version installed that includes these languages, but they are missing from
Plasma's list of keyboard layouts.

I have no idea what needs to be changed, or added, to restore these
layouts. Can anyone give me a suggestion as to how to get them back?

Recent Craft commit broke a recipe

Hi Hannah,

As you know I have been working to make craft recipes to build Kstars using craft. One of my recipes was recently broken by a craft commit. Could you help? The recipe is for netpbm. It worked well just 4 days ago, but now it fails with the latest update to craft. I can confirm that it works with "git checkout 312b48df2fb9cfa8a31efa0b85301875a9f9eadd” but with the most recent one it fails. I’m not sure what commit is causing the failure, but I am assuming it is the one right after the one I just pasted here.

Question about KNewStuff *.knsrc files and manualy installation

For example, we have KDE Aplication program with knsrc files for
KNS3::DownloadDialog (from KHotNewStuff - KDE Framework).
Acording to documentation (
<a href="https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialog.html" title="https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialog.html">https://api.kde.org/frameworks/knewstuff/html/classKNS3_1_1DownloadDialo...</a>,
"Detailed Description") KNewStuff searchs knsrc files only in /etc/xdg
directory.
It works good for packages from repository, because in this case, if we
install knsrc files using KDE_INSTALL_CONFDIR, in package the files will be
in /etc/xdg.
But, if we build and install the program from source, we have some
problems: we could don't change CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX (/usr

About kde sessions

Hi all,

i am playing around with kde sessions,
Usually automatically 'save session when logging out' is set.
Here my questions:
- How to save a session explicitly, entering name and path to store the
session file? How to re-load such session?
- I noticed that restoring session is far from perfection:
- often more than one instance of the same lyx app or dolphin app are
genered. How to avoid such replications?
- Placement at the original activity is not preserved. Can one confirm that
observation?

thank you
paolo m.

More users in one session

Hi all,

I would like to manage different work areas through differest 'service'
users, running applications (mainly dolphin, lyx, okular, falkon) in one
kde session.
To that aim, it would be very convenient to tell users by adding proper names
or pictures to the title bar of applications.

How would that be possible?
thank you
paolo m.

Issues with notifications on KDE Connect

Hello everyone! First time posting here. I'm currently testing KDE
Connect on Windows and so far it works well, with two exceptions. File
transfers don't quite work, neither on Windows nor on my Archlinux
partition. And notifications do work but with certain caveats, namely
that they get displayed for only a pair of seconds, are not stored
anywhere due to lack of integration with Windows' notifications, and
most importantly don't display their contents or allow interacting in
any other way but dismissing them by a click.

Is it possible to set up a script in order to minimize to tray an app in Plasma 5?

I am using the nitrokey app. This is an app running in the tray and handling a
cryptografic token. Unfortunately it opens full screen every time when I log
in, and I would like it to start up at every session but to minimize to tray.
In KDE4 there was an application specific setting but I think in Plasma5 this
is not the case anymore. Therefore I thought about a script...but I do not
know if it is possible, were the script has to be place, if I can (given
correct permissions) make it automatic for every user I wish and how to do
this.

A couple of questions

Hi Hannah,

First, thank you for your help last week. I fixed a few problems with my recipes where things changed since I worked on it this summer and now just about everything works again. Last summer I was at the point where there were just 3 things that I needed to install with homebrew to get KStars to fully build for Mac in craft. They included gpsd, fftw, and boost. After I did a little work this week, I think the recipes are back to that point again.

Move pulseaudio-qt to Extragear

Hi,

together with David Rosca and Aleix Pol I have worked on extracting the
libpulse abstraction from plasma-pa into a library [0][1]. It is
currently optionally required by KDE Connect. plasma-pa and
libtaskmanager will use it at some point in the future. Long-term plan
is to move it to Frameworks, but until the required documentation and
testing is done I'd like to move it to Extragear and make an initial
release.

Cheers

Nicolas

Widget Removed is stuck

First, it created panel on wrong screen: when I right clicked on
Screen 0 and did "Add default panel" it created panel on Screen 1.

Then I tried to move panel to Screen 0. It's counter-intuitive in KDE,
so I always have trouble with this. It somehow removed panel, but left
widget "Task manager" alive.

Then I tried to remove that widget. It's also not easy to find out, so
after some manipulations I finally did it. Then is message is stuck.

Please fix this bug.

GUI scaling

Hi,

in KDE you can scale the whole display. (use systemsettings / Display
and Monitor / Display / Display scaling)

I try this and set scaling to 1.2. I reboot and found that this not
usable for me. I set this value back to 1.0, reboot, but the scaling is
not reverted :-\ (Now may monitor is to small ;-)

How is the way to get the scaling back to normal? Is there a way without
the use of the systemsettings menu?

Bernd

BTW: the menu names are translated from german to english. So maybe they
are not accurate.

How to Change Color of Plasma Panel and other Widgets

Hi all,

I have been working on re theming Plasma for myself, and hopefully
eventually for others and have successfully gotten a coherent color scheme
working with the exception of Plasma's Panel/Taskbar and associated widgets.

While the highlight colors seem to be affected by my desktop theme colors,
the background of the panel and associated widgets remains the same and I
can't seem to find a way to change it.

Is there some specific configuration file somewhere which deals with the
background color of the panel that is separate from the KDE Application
color scheme (modified in the KDE pla

craft dev-utils/bison

Hi,

I just had to configure Craft with Qt Creator and had some issues, one of
them was that the cmake configuration failed because it could not find
BISON. At first I thought I don't have BISON installed for real, so then
I've tried to install BISON with craft, but it always said that I have
version None installed while actually I had BISON installed previously. The
actual problem was that I had to add dev-utils/bin to PATH.

systemsettings5/Regional Settings - strange choices

Hi

systemsettings5/Regional Setting/Languages
I checked this setting and it was blank so i added Brit English. I'm not sure when this changed to blank as i always change everything regional related when the user is created or soon after if any regional issues occur.

systemsettings5/Regional Setting/Formats
I set "Region" to UK British English (en_gb). The "Detailed Settings" was disabled. I wanted to change the "measurement units" to metric so I enabled the "Detailed Settings".
The "Measurement Units" changed from Imperial to Metric even though the entry said "no change".

Emergency downtime notice

Hi all,

We've just received notice that both disks in the server hosting
Phabricator, along with our Git and Subversion repositories have

I have now requested replacement of one of those disks, and once the
array has been rebuilt will request the second be replaced.

To preserve our data in the meantime I have shutdown the container
hosting Phabricator/Git/Subversion, so they will be unavailable for
the next few hours.

My apologies for the inconvenience.

SUMMARY

After I wake

RKWard is in kdereview

Hi!

KDE.org has been our home for a almost four years, now (after over a
decade on sourceforge), but somehow I've kept procrastinating on the
final step: Today I'd like to ask you to start reviewing RKWard for
inclusion into exragear (coming from playground).

RKWard is an easy to use and easily extensible IDE/GUI for R (a

Hello folks, we are still very low on mentors (only 11 have signed up so
far) and tasks: about 45 at last glance.

Please get with your teams and find some more mentors, and get creative
with some tasks. Assign writing some unit tests! Get some bug reports
tested! Help kids get your application installed in Windows, Mac or Linux!

Look at <a href="https://community.kde.org/GCi" title="https://community.kde.org/GCi">https://community.kde.org/GCi</a> for guidelines and ideas.

If you have not yet subscribed to KDE-Soc-Mentor ML please do that, and
then ask for an invite to the webapp, and put in your tasks!

New User: Help Requested in Setting up Development Environment

I recently took up a bug related to the "user-manager" program. After
following the steps in the getting started guide, I was able to
successfully compile and install the program. Running it was a different
story, I hit a segmentation-fault error when trying to run the program
through the konsole. After setting up QtCreator and trying to guess at the
executable path, it tells me that the program quit unexpectedly. I'm trying
to find a way around this so that I can resolve the bug. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

auto QString(Builder) considered VERY HARMFUL

Hello,

Today I fixed the third or so crash in KDE software due to the following
pattern:

const auto str = someString + anotherString;

What happens is that the type of str ends up being QStringBuilder
instead of QString. The QStringBuilder is destroyed after the semicolon,
and all access to "str" produces undefined behavior.
While I'm not a particularly big fan of using auto to hide variable
types anyway, this kind of usage is just wrong and must be avoided.
Please take care.

Cheers,
Andreas

Plasma not starting after new build

Proposal, Adopt .editorconfig in every project

Hello fellows.

In kde software we strive to be inclusive, that means that we don't enforce
a coding style in every new project, nor do we adapt to newer styles on old
software.

plasma search in application launcher?

Folks;

using recent KDE neon (18.04), I see two different "search" approaches
on the desktop:

There's the "plasma search" (triggered by alt+tab on my device) that
searches across a wide range of sources, including packages and running
applications.

And there's the "search" in the stock "application launcher" (start
symbol in the task bar) which apparently just searches applications
installed.

Is there any way to make the "search" in the "application launcher"
behave like the "plasma search"?

Thanks in advance,
Kristian

Start menu and "running" application instances?

Folks;

coming from GNOME and playing with KDE neon, I feel mostly home here
right now except for one thing I didn't manage to set up myself: Is
there a way to, in the applications start menu when searching for
Firefox or Konsole, not start a new instance / window of the application
but rather bring a running instance (if there is one) to front?

Thanks in advance and all the best,
Kristian

Hi everyone,

GCi is around the corner and it is high time that we formulate a good
amount of tasks with assigned mentors to look after them. We only have 15
mentors right now and it would be great if few others in the community
could chip in as well.

Almost around 13 hours to go until the org application period ends and we
would love to see more tasks and more mentors actively participating.

I see a good start on tasks at <a href="https://community.kde.org/GCi" title="https://community.kde.org/GCi">https://community.kde.org/GCi</a>.
